    You Animal!

    This time, our theme involves animal/s. Your picture must include animal/s as the main focus of the picture.

    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a grey area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. But other than that, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. These pictures must be something that YOU TOOK, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    Zz.

    He said 'animals', not 'insects'.

    Do they have to be live animals or are stuffed animals or other representations of animals allowed?

    How could they prove that it's stuffed?

    I assume you mean non-human animals? :tongue:

    I have two I'm really trying to decide between. One's an old favorite, and one's a fairly new photo. As you can imagine, I have a few animal photos. :biggrin:

    Button eyes? Stitched mouth, perhaps? The tell tale purple fur? :rolleyes:

    You do know the difference, I hope, between 'teddy bear' stuffed and 'taxidermy' stuffed? :tongue: Ever seen "Weekend at Bernie's"? :tongue:

    Okay, I was going to go with one of sheep in snow (the subject always amuses me), but decided since it was a scan of an old photo, it just doesn't have the quality I'd like for the contest, so here's something not so fuzzy. :biggrin:

    So is it a vegetable or a mineral then? :confused:

    Moonbear, does Doc Toxyn know that you're snooping in his albums?

    Is too! I think s/he lives under my deck (or I hope that's what I hear rustling around under there :uhh:). I'm still waiting for DocToxyn to come along and tell me what type of froggy it is. I think I posted the more washed out looking photo last time, because it was more of a close-up. This one came out more vivid (I took about 5 pictures of it, playing with different exposure settings and with/without flash, etc., before it got annoyed and hopped away).

    Looks more like a really cute dog than a fruitbat, Evo. You might want to get your prescription checked on your glasses. :biggrin:
